How I Wear Biker Shorts For A Glam Look ?

Biker Shorts Outfit Fashion Blogger NYC Cycle Shorts Runway

I am sure that by now, you are more than aware that the biker shorts trend has been in our faces for at least one year or more. I have always hated shorts all my life, and when I started seeing people wearing this style, my anxiety went to the roof. I don't always follow all the trends that I get exposed to, but for some reason, I loved seeing people wearing biker shorts and how cool these can be styled.
I decided to research more about biker shorts in the fashion world since I love researching and trend forecasting. I wanted to know if these shorts have been used by high-end designers before and not only by fashion influencers for Instagram. I was looking for styles from previous seasons that might have inspired people to start this trend, and curiously enough, I found some designers for menswear and womenswear that preceded the boom of the recent resurgence of the biker shorts. 

According to my research, this trend started as activewear. Basically, it was another athletic piece that people adapted to their everyday wardrobe ( Pretty obvious, right?). But the most significant influence for the return of this trend is the fact that we are translating all the 80's and 90's sportswear references to our everyday wardrobes. 

To my surprise, I found biker shorts in catwalks for menswear dated in 2015 by Jeremy Scott with Addidas; also, a look from Margiela that had this trench coat + cycle short combo in 2016 - this style is now commonly worn by trendy guys on social media. In terms of womenswear collections, Opening Ceremony had a collaboration with Chloe Sevigny ('90s-'00s fashion icon) in 2012, and Dolce and Gabbana showed a version of biker shorts with lingerie for their Spring 15 catwalk. 

Of course, the history of biker shorts starts way back than 2012, but I wanted to learn more about the last decade and who put the biker shorts back into our radar. I also found great examples of fashion designers from the 80s who implemented this style. Azzedine Alaïa, for his Fall 1988 collection, used a ribbed knit yellow fabric for biker shorts and paired it with an oversized crop jacket with huge lapels. This is pretty much the silhouette we use nowadays [PHOTO REFERENCE]Probably in the 1930s, when cycling became more accessible, and people starting recreationally practicing the sport was when biker shorts were introduced in the athletic and fashion world. 

Now I believe that I rock this style and make it my own, but since I wasn't a huge fan of shorts before, I wanted to "glamify" my look. I chose a safe option for this outfit to see how I felt about this trend. I matched a pair of black biker shorts that have a silver ring zipper puller detail with an oversized black blazer and a white high-neck top with criss-cross strap details and added silver accessories that match the zipper of the shorts. The sunglasses and purse are fantastic; I love the extreme cat-eye style from Foster Grant sunglasses and the holographic effect of this small purse. For shoes, I wore my strappy heel sandals, and I think they elevated the look altogether. But I would love to know if you wear biker shorts and if you like how I styled them? What other ways would you rock these shorts?  
I would like to hear your opinion and see your looks too.

Estoy segura de que a estas alturas, estás más que consciente de que la tendencia de los shorts de ciclista han estado en muy presente en el mundo de la moda durante al menos un año o más. La verdad es que siempre he odiado los shorts toda mi vida, y cuando comencé a ver personas luciendo este estilo, mi ansiedad se subió al techo. Yo soy alquien que no siempre sigue todas las tendencias que se me exponenen, pero por alguna razón, me encanta ver a las personas con estos shorts de motociclista o biker y lo geniales que se pueden combinar.
Decidí investigar más sobre los biker shorts en el mundo de la moda ya que me encanta investigar y pronosticar tendencias. Quería saber si estos shorts han sido utilizados por diseñadores de alta gama antes y no solo por personas influyentes de la moda para Instagram. Empecé buscando estilos de temporadas anteriores que podrían haber inspirado a las personas a comenzar esta tendencia de nuevo, y curiosamente encontré algunos diseñadores para ropa de hombre y mujer que precedieron al auge del reciente resurgimiento de los pantalones cortos de motociclista.

Según mi investigación, esta tendencia comenzó como ropa deportiva. Básicamente, era otra pieza atlética que la gente adapto a su vestuario cotidiano (bastante obvio, ¿verdad?). Pero la influencia más importante para el regreso de esta tendencia es el hecho de que estamos traduciendo todas las referencias de ropa deportiva de los años 80 y 90 a nuestros armarios cotidianos.

Para mi sorpresa, encontré shorts de motociclista en las pasarelas de ropa masculina fechadas a 2015 por Jeremy Scott con Addidas, también encontré que Margiela tenía esta combinación de gabardina + chicle de biker corto en 2016: este estilo ahora lo usan comúnmente los hombre en las redes sociales. En términos de colecciones de ropa de mujer, Opening Ceremony tuvo una colaboración con Chloe Sevigny (ícono de la moda de los años 90 y 2000) en 2012, y Dolce y Gabbana mostraron una versión de pantalones cortos de motociclista mezclados con estilo lencería para su pasarela Primavera 2015.

Por supuesto, la historia de los biker shorts no comienza en 2012, pero quería aprender más sobre la última década y quién puso ahora los pantalones cortos de biker en nuestro radar. También encontré excelentes ejemplos de diseñadores de moda de los años 80 que implementaron este estilo. Azzedine Alaïa para su colección de otoño de 1988 usó un tejido amarillo de punto acanalado para pantalones cortos de motociclista y lo combinó con una chaqueta corta de gran tamaño con enormes solapas. Esta es más o menos la silueta que usamos hoy en día [REFERENCIA FOTOGRÁFICA]. Probablemente en la década de 1930 cuando el ciclismo se hizo más accesible y las personas comenzaron a practicar el deporte de manera recreativa fue en evrdad cuando se introdujeron los shorts de ciclista en el mundo del atletismo y la moda.

Ahora creo que me va muy bien este estilo y lo puedo hacer mío, pero como no era una gran fanática de los shorts antes, quería darle algo de glam a mi look. Elegí una opción segura para este atuendo para ver cómo me sentía con respecto a esta tendencia. Combiné un par de biker shorts que tienen un detalle de anillo en la cremallera plateada con un blazer negro oversized y un top blanco de cuello alto con detalles de tiras entrecruzada y accesorios plateados adicionales que combinan con la cremallera de los pantalones cortos. Las gafas de sol y el bolsito son increíbles; me encanta el estilo extremo de ojo de gato de las gafas de la marca Foster Grant y el estilo holográfico del bolso. Para los zapatos, usé mis sandalias de tacón con tiras y creo que elevaron el look por completo. Pero ustedes que opinan? Te gustan los biker shorts y como los usas?  
Me encataria saber tu opinión. 
Gracias por leer,

The Rise Of Loungewear

Loungewear in a rack with pink and black graphics

This year 2020 impacted drastically every aspect of our lives. One of the things that have changed during the lockdown days is the way we dress. For a lot of people, staying at home means being comfortable, relaxed, and carefree, and we all were "forced" to stay at home during the COVID19. So what happened to our styles during this time? 

A lot of people didn't want to stay in their pajamas the whole day, but also didn't want to wear casual/streetwear or officewear to be at home. This made all of us to redefine our habits, styles, and enjoy comfy clothes that make us look "decent" but feel relaxed and cozy. Loungewear became the new daily fashion, the new normal.  
The rise of Loungewear in the fashion industry is evident, and fashion designers like me have started to analyze the market and incorporate loungewear details in our designs. It is unbelievable to think that when I started designing, I only wanted to make couture or eveningwear, but my style has evolved to a more sportier elegant look. Now I am thinking about how I can combine the elegant classic details of couture, the cool factor of sportswear, and the comfy style and materials of Loungewear. 

I also have been questioning myself if Loungewear could be athleticwear, and I came up with the conclusion that it could be. Even though everyone has different comfort levels and I feel good when I am wearing my gym clothes around the house. Maybe for you, tight clothes are not comfortable, and you prefer wearing loose soft pieces. So pretty much depends on each person and what they like. What do you think? 
I have one or two pairs of leggings to workout that are more compressive, and I wouldn't include them in the loungewear category. Basically, Loungewear means loose clothing in which one feels cozy, wears around the house, and occasionally being worn outside; they have simple silhouettes and soft fabrics.

For Loungewear, I prefer monochromatic looks or sets with similar details for the top and bottom parts. These details add an illusion that the look is complete and well throughout. 
My sets always have unique details and cuts that upgrade the basic style that some loungewear clothes have. As you can see, this grey set has basic leggings, but the top part has only one sleeve, which makes the set to look different and sexier. 
Loungewear popularity increased exponentially this 2020, Are you enjoying the rise of loungewear? Are you wearing cute looks at home or are you still rocking your pajamas? 

I sometimes wear headpieces or accessories that complement the loungewear look and that I can easily take off if I want to take a nap.

"Black loungewear sets always look well. I like the ones with comfy joggers and sweatshirts with elastic trims".

I guess it is OK to have the same or similar styles of loungewear but in different colors.

White Hearts - Valentine's Day Nail Art

I hope everyone had a beautiful Valentine's Day. If you didn't do anything different or strange from your everyday routine, I'm hoping your day went well. Today I want to show you this pretty nail design that can be worn any day because it's simple, feminine, and sweet. 
I didn't do anything strange for Valentine's Day, I only stayed at home and went to the gym, but I spend my time applying nail polish and creating this beautiful design that I hope you like. It is a mix of red, pink and white nail polishes and baby pink glitter.
